New releases

YOUR NEW RELEASES: As we suggested yesterday, it looks like a battle is brewing for next week's #1 album. Both Now 51 and Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1 appear headed toward totals just south of 100k. For such an outcome to occur, though, Now 51 will need to trend similarly to its predecessors, while Guardians will need to pull in another stellar weekend. Here are this week's key debuts:

Now 51 (NOW) 90-100k
Godsmack (Republic) 45-50k
Spoon (Loma Vista/Concord) 35-40k
The Vamps (Island) 18-20k
Andy Grammer (S-Curve) 9-11k

Btw, Jody Rosen’s four-star lead review of Spoon’s They Want My Soul just went up on RollingStone.com. (8/6a)
